Message regarding donations




Dear brothers and sisters,


I am writing to inform you that Worthing Masjid is no longer collecting funds to provide Iftar for vulnerable members of our community. We believe that we now have sufficient funds for this purpose.


I would like to thank all those who made a donation and assisted in delivery. (Jazak Allah) I have been overwhelmed by your generosity. May Allah reward you in this world and the hereafter.



Donations to our general masjid fund are still being received gratefully. If you had intended to donate you may wish to make a general donation instead. The Masjid has many overheads and due to the current circumstances, it is unable to collect from the congregation.


May Allah reward you for your generosity.

Due to the current coronavirus lockdown which is keeping the Masjid shut for everyone’s safety, we’ve lost two important income streams, the weekly Jummuah collections and Madrasah fees.

You can help us by donating much-needed funds direct to the Masjid Bank Account – HSBC plc, A/c Name: Worthing Islamic Social and Welfare Society; A/c No. 01060813 Sort Code. 404723

– May Allah reward you abundantly for your generosity.

Jazakallahu Khairan.

Assalaamu alaykum

Dear parents,

I hope this message reaches you in the best of health and faith.

As you may be aware, the Government has announced the closure of schools. In line with this announcement, we have also decided to suspend face to face teaching at the Madrasah. This will be in effect from today.

As we do not know how long this will continue, we are offering parents the opportunity to access online teaching.

I need to know what the interest is like for this before I decide the best way to facilitate this.

If you are interested and require further information please text or what’s app me your child’s name, your name, your email address and mobile number.

We will be charging a reduced rate of fees for this service.

Jazakallah khairan

Imam Idris.

*Suspension of Activities at Worthing Masjid in Response to Covid-19.*

Due to the severity of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and its risk to public health, it is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that we have no option but to immediately suspend all activities at Worthing Masjid until further notice, starting after Isha prayers tonight. (22/03/2020) This decision is the result of an internal consultation and follows advice and guidance
from esteemed healthcare professionals, the Government, and other Masjids and Islamic organisations.

Worthing Masjid shall immediately suspend:

• congregational five daily prayers;
• congregational Jummuah prayers; and
• programmes, events and talks.

The Imams will give the adhaan, pray 5 times daily salaah and engage in aamals to protect the sanctity of the Masjid.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding. We urge you to take all necessary precautions to stop the
spread of the virus. We shall continuously review the decision and update you accordingly. We encourage you
to continue your daily prayers and routines from home, engage in dua, recitation of the Quran, istigfar and

We pray that Allah, the Most Merciful, showers us with His infinite mercy and grants relief, protection and ease
to all of humanity in these testing times.

We will continue to keep our community regularly updated by way of our home transmitter, website ( and Facebook page.

19 March 2020 *Worthing Masjid suspends Jumuah for the public, due to the coronavirus pandemic*


Following the latest rulings (fatwa’s) from many reputable scholars, several Shari’ah Boards, as well as the latest UK governmental guidance and advice from medical organisations and local medical professionals, Worthing Masjid have taken the unprecedented and difficult move to suspend Jumuah services to the public.

This is a decision that was not taken lightly and has been done to prevent the further spread of the virus in our Masjid and the UK at large, with the foremost being the protection of the elderly and vulnerable amongst our community.

We ask everyone to offer Jumuah at home, which should be replaced with the normal dhuhr (mid-day prayer consisting of 4 raka’at Fardh + Sunnan) prayer. The Imam’s speech can be heard through the transmitter at 1pm.

Madrasah, educational classes and other activities will also be suspended after today till further notice.

We will continue to offer the other Salahs with congregation. However, we are carefully monitoring goverment advice and are prepared for any eventuality.

Idris Nawab.
